And The Winners Of #AniFab '21, The Animalis Fabula Film Festival Are . . .
And this is where I get to thank so many for their contributions, involvement, and support of the 2021 Animalis Fabula Film Festival. Thank you goes to:
Congratulations Go Out To:
The Conservation Game is winning kudos around the world for having such an impact on the TV animal ambaassdor programs and challenging ZOO culture.
Although not all filmmakers could be in attendance, many had an opportu nity to participate virtually. Great filmmakers all.
The whole team here at #AniFab is proud of all the accomplishments of all our filmmakers. Thank you for sharing your stories.
Cat Daddies is winning awards and filling screenings, PotenDogs is about to release the season 2 movie and parts of both movies will appear in the new PBS series, Rider's Rescues from WA2S Films (more about licensing AniFab content for TV below), and Bob Barker award-winner SMART director Justin Zimmerman is doing the film fest circuit with yet another powerful doc.
Thank you jurors!
Yen Tan, Leeah Dollar-Olmos, Nicole Sylvester and Mye Hoang
Thank you to Paramount + for allowing AniFab to screen Rick Linklatter's That Animal Rescue Show. It was great to meet so many nonprofits from the various episodes and we were happy to provide them a voice and an opportunity to engage a live audience.
The Rainforest Partnership presented news from COP26 and shared Films From The Forest, films championing Rainforests around the world. Special Thanks go out to Leeah and husband Richie for helping out and being amazing volunteers.
BEARS Etc. had a great booth - We're going to give booths awards In 2022!
Big thanks go out to The Conservation Game team; Jeff, Keith, and director Mike Webber for delivering a powerful workshop covering investigative documentary filmmaking and the processes they use to collect and present meaningful data in story form to underscore a hard-to-finger causal effect man has on animals. Very empowering information and discourse.
Thanks also to Jo Meuris, director of the Kid's Choice Award-winning Aurora for her emotionally engaging workshop, Animation for Emotional Impact. I've never cried so much before at a film workshop - in a good way, of course.
We are going to be reaching out to more than a half dozen movies that were submitted to AniFab 21 for inclusion in our new PBS animal rescue series: Rider's Rescues. Look for an email from our team this week.
Is this the new home of the Animalis Fabula Film Festival? Stay tuned. . .
